Envivio Introduces Advanced Encoding System For Mobile TV

Demonstrating its commitment to empower a converged IP world, Envivio has introduced its new version of the 4Caster M2, the world's first and only multi-rate, multi-resolution and multi-standard encoder that outputs eight simultaneous profiles with live bit rate switching from a single video input.
This comprehensive feature set makes the M2 the most advanced mobile encoder available on the market. The system will be on display in the Envivio stand 1.550 at IBC2006 in Amsterdam.
Envivio will also showcase a technology demonstration of next generation IP-based multiplexing capabilities in the form of statistical rate control that will optimize bandwidth usage for operators using mobile broadcast technology. The 4Caster M2 mobile encoding system is shipping now.
In anticipation of a converged IP world made up of hybrid networks and hybrid devices, Envivio has introduced the first encoder able to support any device on any network.
The 4Caster M2 supports network and device convergence thanks to a highly advanced list of features including:
  • Video to any network, including 2.5G, 3G, and 3.5G networks, mobile broadcast networks such as DVB-H, as well as next generation networks such as Wifi and Wimax
  • The most support of network standards, including 3GPP, 3GPP2, DVB-H, DMB, and ISDB-T
  • Extensive device support, including all of the most popular video handsets currently deployed in mobile networks, as tested and verified by Envivio customers and partners
  • Management and output of up to eight subscriber profiles simultaneously, thereby significantly reducing total cost of ownership
  • Simultaneous streaming and broadcasting of mobile video at multiple bit rates to ensure the highest quality video for any network being used and any device being targeted
  • Live bit rate switching, a unique feature that enables the video encoder to modify the bit rate in real time as a result of changes in the quality of the network
In order to address the needs of a telco-grade deployment, the M2 includes all the standard professional features of the 4Caster product line, such as complete network management with N+M redundancy systems, digital and analog audio and video inputs, and web management.
In addition, the M2 supports ISMACryp, ISMA wireless standards and can be integrated with mainstream mobile ecosystem components to offer a complete mobile video headend solution. Whatever the network, whatever the video standard, whatever the device and whatever the change in available bandwidth, the M2 is the ideal system to support the mobile TV services of today and tomorrow.
Julien Signès, President and CEO of Envivio commented: "As the uncontested leader in mobile video headend deployments, Envivio is delivering encoders that anticipate the needs of the market. The 4Caster M2 fully addresses video convergence by supporting any mobile device on any network."
The 4Caster M2 mobile encoder will be on display in the following booths at IBC 2006: Enensys 3.430c, Harris 7.62, and the Mobile Zone M323/M324.
Envivio is a leading technology provider of IP-based MPEG-4 video systems and solutions for telcos, enterprises, and broadcasters.
